Do any other bees have terrible handwriting?
Both Fiance and I do and I am not sure how to handle this. I just hand printed (honestly looks like a third grader wrote them out) my engagement thank yous (no cursive).
Is it wrong to use non-cursive handwriting?

do you mean printed out – like print handwriting or printed out – using a computer?

I too have the handwriting of a 3rd grade. Fi is a little better, maybe 5th grade, lol. I’m dreading the thank you cards out of being embarrassed by my handwriting. Maybe I can get a lot done on the plane and blame it on turbulence…

@tranquility:Honestly, yes it’s wrong to print. Even if you have “bad” handwriting. Is it legible? I think people would appreciate a handwritten note, regardless of how neat it looks.

oh sure – you can definitely print! As long as it’s handwritten, you’re good!

Honestly, I don’t care if the thank you is written (or printed) in crayon, as long as
A) I get a thank you
B) it comes from the heart

You can absolutely print, as long as they are hand written. Printing is becoming much more acceptable. A lot of schools don’t even teach “cursive” anymore.

Just my two cents–I am not an experienced wedding guest. I would not know or care whether it was supposed to be print or cursive.

I would prefer the couple had someone else write it for them if their handwriting is really that bad. If it’s just a little rough but legible, I’d prefer handwriting to anything computer generated. I think non-cursive handwriting is fine. 😉

@tranquility: Totally fine!! As long as it’s lettered by hand, you’re in the clear.

@tranquility: I’ve got horrid penmanship too. When you order your thank you cards make sure you order a buuuuunch of extras. I had to redo a lot of mine because it looked like the dog wrote them.:)

My handwriting is ugly but can be read without any issues.
I will make sure to get extras for those mistakes!
Thanks for your input!

Handwriting or print either are fine, just not computer printed. (Although I wish one could!) My handwriting is ghastly! I’m planning to do the Martha Stewart wrap around address labels because a calligrapher is out of reach and my handwriting is so dreadful!

We both have chicken scratch handwriting, plus I’m left handed and smudge ink everywhere. I definitely had to use print. Like someone else posted…just make sure to buy a bunch of extras if you are a chicken scratch paper smudger like me lol
edit: I barely even remember how to write in cursive anyways! I was always the kid that wrote “I can’t wait to go home and watch Full Horse!” instead of Full House.
